    Default Hello

    Hi all,

    I'm new here and while not necessarily completely new to java programming, I do have a very limited knowledge database for it. I've dabbled before and I have been dabbling in different languages since I was a kid. I am mostly interested in basic game programming and have written several basic games, worm, tic-tac-toe, pong and super basic rpgish adventure things in python/pygame. I like to take open source code from diff pygame projects and mess with them.

    Anywho, I'm here because I have a renewed interest in dabbling back in java.

    Welcome trips!

    I do enjoy game programming whenever I have some spare time. I use the OpenGL bindings for Java.

    Enjoy your stay at JPF.

    Take a look at the Robo Code thread Json.

    Would this be something you would be interested in doing? Looks cool!

    Thanks for the welcome

    JavaPF, I think that robo code game looks like a fun challenge, and a good way to learn more about java. I would definitely be interested in participating in something like that.

    Json, all my pygame stuff I do with OpenGL. Did a quick search, on wikipedia it shows examples of several different implementations of java with OpenGL(JOGL, YAJOGL, LWJGL), what do you use? and do you know the main differences between these?

    I personally started out with the JOGL bindings which are basically just a binding library written by sun to map straight to the Open GL API. LWJGL is another bindings library for OpenGL which has a lot more features and utilities in it and actually started before the JOGL project I think. I don't know about YAJOGL.
